About This Class

9abe0518

In this class I'll take you through the steps needed to create a beautiful and realistic watercolour painting of a pumpkin.

You don't need any prior experience, it's not as hard as you might think.  It's a technique which involves building up layers of colour and once you've learnt it, you can apply to anything you want to paint.

The pumpkins are a really gratifying subject to paint, I hope you have fun!
